Scrum way of working

Last Friday, a number of colleagues followed a Scrum Training. This training was given by our Agile/Scrum coach Lars Liebrand!

Within BIM-Connected it is important that all colleagues can work according to the Scrum method. This helps:

๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿฝ our software development | Wistor and BIM-Bridge

๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿฝ to have control over our projects

๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿฝ to achieve faster, workable and structured results with clients

If you are also interested in Scrum training, please feel free to contact us. Our colleague Lars is happy to help and/or provide a training.

Wistor as Common Data Environment (CDE) for the municipality of Utrecht

In the past year, BIM-Connected won the tender for the construction of an asset information facility for the Municipality of Utrecht; The way in which information about objects (assets) in the Public Space is provided.

As BIM-Connected, we are extremely proud that the municipality of Utrecht has chosen the vision to work with open data standards that disconnect data from applications. With this innovative solution, more efficient and sustainable information management is not far away. Together with Visma | iASSET, who are responsible for the Basic Public Space Management System, is taking the right steps with the municipality in the digital transition and data-driven working.


The strength of the Wistor platform for this assignment is:

๐Ÿ‘‰ The platform is configured around the data (sets).

๐Ÿ‘‰ Hosting data based on Linked Data

๐Ÿ‘‰ Easy to use and apply open standards (NEN3610, NEN2660, IMBOR)

๐Ÿ‘‰ Connect to the Common Ground principles of municipalities

๐Ÿ‘‰ Automatically integrates and validates the data

๐Ÿ‘‰ Viewer functionality

In the near future, several applications will be connected to the CDE, making more information available centrally and in a harmonized manner.

Awarding fireBIM subsidy process

Based on our submitted plan, we as international consortium (Dutch participants: Stam + De Koning, Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e), BuildingSmart Benelux and BIM-Connected) have been awarded the subsidy process by ITEA4 for the FireBIM project.

FireBIM aims to harmonize and implement the fire safety codes of participating countries into an open-source, web-based BIM platform for fire safety assessment that facilitates (inter)national fire safety documentation and compliance from the early design stages.

Our expertise: recording fire resistance requirements in an ontology, and then automatically checking 3D models (in IFC) based on the ontology. Our Wistor platform is used to make multiple use cases, user-friendly, possible in the coming years.

Project description over here.

This initiative contributes to the United Nations (UN) sustainability goals.

Knowledge session together with VDNDP

Knowledge session ๐Ÿ’ก

As part of our two weekly knowledge sessions our colleague Fred Kloet invited Jeffrey Truijens, partner at VDNDP, at our office.

Topic: Data-driven Facility Management. How do we help our clients in data-driven decision making in the last stages of the asset life cycle? What could be improved and what can we learn from BIM and digitalization in earlier stages of the asset life cycle?

A good session to share knowledge between VDNDP and BIM-Connected.
